Rydberg Equation

Postby MaddyMoore3A » Sun Oct 09, 2016 9:56 pm

Can the Rydberg equation only be used to describe hydrogen atoms, or can it be applies to other elements as well?

I think that the Rydberg Equation itself can be used for any atoms. However, the constant for R would be different for all atoms so the only constant we know for sure is Hydrogen which is why its the only atom we used for the equation.
